Accounting/Business 2+2 (West Virginia University Institute of Technology)

Accounting / Business 2+2
Associate in Science Degree
Transfer to West Virginia University Institute of Technology
Note: The “2+2” term is used to refer to a transfer agreement through which a student completes an Associate degree at WVNCC and finishes a Bachelor’s degree at another institution. Because of individual student factors, part-time or full-time status, need for transitional education coursework, scheduling and availability of courses, or other factors, all students may not be able to complete this degree in two (Associate’s) or four (Bachelor’s) years. The term “2+2” does not imply a guarantee that a student will be able to complete all requirements in four years.

This option is designed for students preparing for transfer to West Virginia University Institute of Technology to complete work in a B.S. degree in Accounting. In addition to competencies gained upon completion of the AS degree in Accounting/Business, students will be able to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Students wishing to transfer to WVU Tech’s Accounting program must meet the minimum entrance requirements established by WVU Tech. Students should consult with their advisor regarding requirements.

Note:Although a cumulative GPA of 2.0 meets requirements for graduation at WVNCC, students who do not meet the GPA (or other special) requirements at the transfer institution for admission to this baccalaureate program may not be admitted to the program until they are able to meet those requirements. Students should consult with an advisor at the transfer institution early in their program to check on this, and other requirements for admission to the baccalaureate program.
